While reacting to certain speculations, Kaleem Imam denied his transfer. He spoke of a conspiracy against him.
“This ceremony is being considered as my farewell ceremony […] It seems like Sindh police are trying to save its budget,” he added.
However, Sindh minister Saeed Ghani and CM’s adviser Murtaza Wahab also reiterated their opposition to his retaining as IG Sindh.
